At just 15 years old, actor, singer, rapper and dancer Adam Irigoyen loves to entertain. Born on August 5, 1997, this talented, bilingual Miami native moved to southern California at age 11 with his family and began his acting career, appearing in multiple commercials and print campaigns before guest-starring on the Disney Channel’s Emmy Award-winning series Wizards of Waverly Place, which eventually led to an audition for his current costarring role as Martin “Deuce” Martinez on Shake It Up, longtime friend to “CeCe” and “Rocky”, played by Bella Thorne and Zendaya. Adam has been nominated for several acting awards for his work on Shake it Up, including a 2012 ALMA Award for Favorite TV Actor – Supporting Role in a Comedy.
